For this Autism Awareness month, do some research. And if you are fine with lighting it up with blue to work today —- then do it but if you think that you want to stand with those who are on the spectrum? perphaps wear red.
I believe strongly we need to listen to those on the spectrum. I am also recognize that the most you call of those on the spectrum don’t represent everyone in very individual culture. And that Families and Communities around autism need to be considered as well.
So I’m not advocating for either one. Whatever you do (and I’m not advocating one or the other as I support anything that raises awareness acceptance and appreciation of those on the spectrum)
Do something to increase someones else’s understanding of what Autism is both the strength and weakness and /or the support that are needed for the families of persons living with disabilities in our communities.
